    CORRALITOS, Calif. -- A logging protester has died after falling 50 feet from a California redwood tree.
    The man was found by loggers who heard moaning in an area where a group of tree-sitters had been camped since August.

    The protester -- who hasn't been identified -- was with the Earth First! environmental group.

    The group said that he'd been living in the tree near San Jose for several weeks -- but that it was his first ''tree-sitting'' experience.

    Tree sitters can spend months camping on platforms in old growth trees, calling attention to the environmental effects of logging.

    welp, the fool got his wish, when he fell out of the tree, he hit the "Earth First"!!!!!!

    I know, bad form but hey, life sucks sometimes, you know?

    Truly though, even though an adversary, I am sure somewhere there may be a Mother and Father who lost a child, and they have to deal with him going stupidly, if not with panash, and a bit of irony.
